I have created a addin which downloads a series of events from a php webservice and then adds them to the outlook calendar.

I know have a requirement to check if the appointment\event exists before te insert happens. this is to prevent duplicates of the same appointment.

I also need the abiity to change the appointment if the times have changed. Is there anyway of storing a ID number in the appointment.

Many thanks for any help. The code i am using to create the appointment is below.
Private Sub Btn2_Click(ByVal ctrl As Office.CommandBarButton, ByRef cancelDefault As Boolean) Handles btn1.Click

        Dim service As New wsclick.webservice

        Dim events As Array

        Dim uc As New wsclick.userCredentials

        uc.username = My.Settings.uname

        uc.password = My.Settings.pwd

        uc.database = My.Settings.db

        events = service.getEvents(uc)
 

        For Each cevent As wsclick.Event In events
 
 
 

            createEvents(cevent.subject, cevent.startdate, cevent.enddate, cevent.allday, cevent.description, cevent.timezone, cevent.remind, cevent.recurrenceperiod, cevent.recurrenceenddate, cevent.recurrenceoccurrences)
 

        Next
 
 

        MessageBox.Show("You have succesfully synchronised")
 
 

    End Sub
 

    

     Sub createEvents(ByVal subject As String, ByVal startdate As String, ByVal enddate As String, ByVal allday As String, ByVal description As String, ByVal timezone As String, ByVal remind As String, ByVal reccurrenceperiod As String, ByVal recurrencedate As String, ByVal recurrenceoccurencies As String)
 
 

        Dim oevent As Outlook.AppointmentItem = oapp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olAppointmentItem)

        With oevent

            .Subject = subject

            .Start = CType(startdate, DateTime)

            .End = CType(enddate, DateTime)

            

            .Save()

        End With

    End Sub
